HARRISBURG, Pa. — The 2020 All-American Dairy Show has been cancelled to mitigate the risk of COVID-19. The show was originally scheduled to run September 12-16, 2020 at the Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex and Expo Center.

“Agriculture and youth are the foundation of the All-American Dairy Show,” said Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding. “These exhibitors are our top priority. We want to see them succeed, with good health and safety, as the future of agriculture relies on them. It’s the right thing to do for our agriculture community.”

The All-American Dairy Association Executive Board understands the responsibility to ensure the health and safety of all exhibitors, spectators and volunteers, while also adhering to the standards of the Pennsylvania Department of Health.

The All-American Dairy Show features nearly 2,000 of the top dairy cattle shown by over 1,000 of the best exhibitors in the U.S. and Canada. With 23 dairy shows in five days, including four days dedicated to youth shows, contests and programs, the All-American Dairy Show is the premier stop on the tanbark trail.

“We have spent months working through options that would have allowed us to host the show, but ultimately the All-American Board had to make the difficult decision to cancel,” said Pennsylvania Farm Show Complex Competitive Events Manager J. Harrison Frantz. “We look forward to being back at full strength in 2021.”

The All-American Dairy Association Executive Board is looking to the future and planning for next year’s All-American Dairy Show set to be held on September 18-22, 2021.

The All-American Board of Directors and staff put in a lot of time over the last couple months trying to put together options to host the All-American Show. However, to ensure the health and safety of all exhibitors, spectators, and volunteers while not diminishing the exhibitor friendly atmosphere and prestige of the show the decision was made to cancel the 2020 All-American Dairy Show. This unfortunately impacts our PA Holstein Fall Championship Shows, as they are part of the All-American Dairy Show.
